Supervisor:
Department of Mathematics
Synopsis:

The subject is devoted to practical use of statistical methods studied in the course Mathematical Statistics 01MAS. The tutorial deals with calculation of Fisher information matrix of statistical models, finding unbiased estimators with minimal variance, parameter estimation by method of moments and method of maximum likelihood, derivation of critical regions for hypothesis testing using the Neyman-Pearson lemma and likelihood ratio, calculation of confidence intervals and non-parametric density estimation.

Requirements:

Basic course of Calculus and Probability (in the extent of the courses 01MAB3, 01MAB4 and 01MIP held at the FNSPE CTU in Prague).

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Transformations of random variables

2. Applications of the Law of large numbers nad the Central limit theorem

3. Calculation of Fisher information matrix of statistical models
